Cylindrical Roller Bearings



SKF cylindrical roller bearings are available in many designs, series and sizes

The major design differences between the cylindrical roller bearings presented in this catalogue are in:

  • The number of roller rows (one or two)
  • The type of cage (with, without or special designs)

– Bearings with a cage can accommodate heavy radial loads and peak loads, rapid accelerations and high speeds

– Full complement bearings (without cage) incorporate a maximum number of rollers and are therefore suitable for very heavy radial loads at moderate speeds

– SKF high-capacity cylindrical roller bearings combine the high load carrying capacity of a full complement bearing with the high speed capability of a bearing with cage

  • The configuration of the inner and outer ring flanges (position and number of guide flanges) Bearing features
  • High load carrying capacity
  • High stiffness
  • Accommodate axial displacement except for bearings with flanges on both the inner and outer rings
  • Low friction: The open flange design, together with the roller end design and surface finish, promote lubricant film formation resulting in lower friction and higher axial load carrying capacity
  • Long service life: The logarithmic roller profile reduces edge stresses at the roller/raceway contact and sensitivity to misalignment and shaft deflection
  • Enhanced operational reliability: The surface finish on the contact surfaces of the rollers and raceways supports the formation of a hydrodynamic lubricant film
  • Separable and interchangeable: The separable components of SKF cylindrical roller bearings are interchangeable. This facilitates mounting and dismounting, as well as maintenance inspections
